PCR test is not required to travel to countries are Sweden to Switzerland


he global pandemic has had an impact on travel in more ways than one.

From the grounding of flights to ever-changing border restrictions and airlines only accepting passengers who have been vaccinated, the travel spectrum over the past two years has been something of a minefield to navigate.

One of the more annoying aspects of travel in the age of Covid-19 is the requirement for PCR tests before flying. Not only is this an inconvenience, it can be a significant expense for travellers, especially families.

But travel restrictions for an increasing number of destinations are slowly being phased out, with pre-departure tests no longer required for those heading to several tourist destinations.

And while several nations have recently opened, many, including Morocco and the Maldives, still require PCR tests for travel. But there is a growing number of places you can fly to for a swab-free getaway.

That being said, testing rules change frequently so be sure to check the most up-to-date information on your destination before you travel. And keep in mind that some airlines — including Etihad Airways, the UAE’s national airline — require passengers to have a PCR test before being allowed to board a flight, no matter where they are flying to.

Here are some of the top destinations where, depending on your vaccination status, you can now (or soon) travel to without a PCR test.
